This program requires the file VBRUN100.DLL. If you did not get it

with WINWHEEL, then please contact your shareware vendor. Or you

may download it from Compuserve. It is in the file VBRUN.ZIP in

the MSBASIC forum in the Visual Basic library (lib #5). Al 414v2120e ternately,

contact the author at the address below. There is a $2.00 shipping

and handling charge.


Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software

before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue

using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs

differ on details -- some request registration while others

require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With

registration of WINWHEEL, you get the most recent revision of

the program with over 11,900 puzzles.

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software,

and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific

exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished

programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are

of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs

and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of

distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy

and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a

specific group. For example, some authors require written

permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their


Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You

should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook,

whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes

fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy.

And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware

has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the

product, you don't pay for it.


Users of WINWHEEL must accept this disclaimer of warranty:

"WINWHEEL is supplied as is. The author disclaims all

warranties, expressed or implied, including, without limitation,

the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose.

The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or conse-

quential, which may result from the use of WINWHEEL."

There is a known problem with WINWHEEL and some other Windows

programs when used at resolutions higher than standard VGA (640 X480)

on graphic cards using the Tseng video chipset. The Orchid ProDesigner II

and SpeedStar cards are known to have this problem. The buttons will be

improperly placed on the screen. This is caused by using a non-standard

font-size in Windows. Portions of the Windows screen are sized and

positioned proportional to the font size. Some video drivers have options

for using a large font in the higher resolutions. This will cause the

buttons and some text to be improperly positioned on the screen. The

solution at this time is to get new Windows video drivers for your

Super VGA card which will select the correct font. There are replacement

drivers on Compuserve for the Tseng ET4000 cards (Orchid Prodesigner, and

Diamond SpeedSTAR cards, among others).

WINWHEEL V.1.4 is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge

to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your

friends, but please do not give it away altered or as part of

another system. The essence of "user-supported" software is to

provide personal computer users with quality software without

high prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to

continue to develop new products. If you find this program

useful and find that you are using WINWHEEL and continue to use

WINWHEEL after a reasonable trial period, you must make a reg-

istration payment of $19.00 to Russell Mueller. The $19.00

registration fee will license one copy for use on any one

computer at any one time. You must treat this software just like

a book. An example is that this software may be used by any

number of people and may be freely moved from one computer

location to another, so long as there is no possibility of it

being used at one location while it's being used at another.

Just as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the

same time.

Commercial users of WINWHEEL must register and pay for their

copies of WINWHEEL within 30 days of first use or their license

is withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made by contacting

Russell Mueller at the address below.

Anyone distributing WINWHEEL for any kind of remuneration must

first contact Russell Mueller at the address below for authorization.

You are encouraged to pass a copy of WINWHEEL V.1.4 along to your

friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register their

copy if they find that they can use it. All registered users

will receive a copy of the latest version of the WINWHEEL

system, software support via mail, and free upgrades/fixes for 90 days

from date of registration.

WINWHEEL, EGAWHEEL, and VGAWHEEL have been found to be useful to educators

at all levels. These programs are being used for improving language skills

in the English language. EGAWHEEL and VGAWHEEL are DOS programs nearly

identical to WINWHEEL, without the requirement for Microsoft Windows or a

mouse. Thy also contain a built-in editor which may be used to create a

custom database of puzzles for education and entertainment. Please contact

the author for a site-license agreement with quantity discount.

***ASP Ombudsman Policy ** ** ** ** ** ** ***********

"This program is produced by a member of the Association of Shareware

Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle

works for you. If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with

an ASP member by contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help.

The ASP Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP

member, but does not provide technical support for members' products. Please

write to the ASP Ombudsman at 545 Grover Road, Muskegon, MI 49442

or send a Compuserve message via Compuserve Mail to ASP Ombudsman


** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ******

Beware, younger children may not fully understand the

rules and are prone to fighting when one player monopolizes

the Wheel.

Players outside the U.S. may not recognize some of the

puzzles, especially those which pertain to U.S. television celebrities or

programs. I do not have a database which is specific to the world market.

I have included a program EDITWHEE.EXE which is a DOS program to edit the

puzzles and create a new CHAMP.DAT file, should the original become corrupted

or if you wish to start a new Top Ten WHEELERS list. Run it from the DOS

prompt, from the Edit option on the menu line, or add it to your games group.

You can add it to a group by using the Program Manager, "File-New-Browse" and

add the EDITWHEE.PIF file in the Command Line.

ATTENTION EGA & VGA owners with DOS systems.
